I'm running a Ubuntu server in VMWare. And I would like to forward the X11 from the Ubuntu guest to the Mac host.
XQuartz 2.7.9 (xorg-server 1.17.4) on the Mac host.
And SSH forwarding on the Ubuntu is enabled.
Then I tried the following in iTerm:
%> echo $DISPLAY /private/tmp/com.apple.launchd.mjxVyILVrR/org.macosforge.xquartz:0 %> ssh -X root@xxxx # echo $DISPLAY # gnome-terminal Unable to init server: Could not connect: Connection refused Failed to parse arguments: Cannot open display
$DISPLAY is empty, and X11 forwarding is not working.
